This grand cruise takes you on a journey between two gems of art history, Venice and Athens. On the way see Renaissance masterpieces at Urbino, visit Diocletian’s massive mausoleum in Split, and admire the natural wonder of Kotor Bay. See ancient Olympia and the huge natural harbour of Pylos. Then call at Hydra, one of Greece’s most charming and picturesque islands.

See the Minoan site of Akrotiri, wonderfully well-preserved beneath volcanic ash for thousands of years, and in Crete learn more about another legendary destination, the Minotaur’s Labyrinth, hidden beneath the Palace of Knossos. In Rhodes, visit the Acropolis of Lindos, then step ashore on the sacred island of Delos, birthplace of Achilles, before relaxing on the waterfront in beautiful Mykonos.

Arriving in Athens, an optional two-night hotel stay is also available, giving you the chance to experience the capital’s many wonders, including the world-famous Acropolis, site of the Parthenon.
